Bear In Heaven – Bag Of Bags

I put this song to ground about 3 months ago with the intention of returning at a later date to dissect. The reason, well it’s a pretty torrid listen, at least until you crack its near impenetrable code. Yep, a cursory look at my account shows I’m well into double figures in the listening stakes and only now has the fog that surrounds ‘Bag of Bags’ started to clear. But it has been worth the effort, think Animal Collective at their least forgiving but with all the nice bits hidden in corners you didn’t even think existed. The Brooklyn quartet are your quintessential bedroom experimentalists, destined to inhabit the margins but also capable of deeply touching those who suffer to make the connection. ‘Bag of Bags’ is the opener from their soon to be released long EP called ‘Red Bloom of the Boom’ (they don’t make it easy for us do they!). Approach with caution, this bears’ got plenty of teeth. KD
